It's a good direction.

1) Search trough the code revealed that there are also other cases:
a) in association_facet:association.js:1031,1082 - add and delete when 
bulk_associator (default) is used (ie. in group/member_user). Make sure 
that it doesn't crash when serial associator is used (it doesn't use 
batch command).
b) sudo rule delete option

Can be reproduced by using two Web UIs and trying to do the same action 
in both instances.

2) I wonder whether to not call notify_success when all commands in a 
batch fail. User should know what failed from the error dialog. But it 
is not sufficiently verbose in this matter, it should show how many 
commands succeeded and failed - 
https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/1702 . Until then I'm hesitant 
to omit the notify_success call. On the other hand, it might be easier 
to do now. What do you think?
